Maybe it is because it is a "steal" frame?

I notice it has a newly replaced front crank, why didn't he replace the rear crank.

The fork puzzles me.

Front fender is backwards.

The fork was re-raked for "track" geometry!

What Would be a big dent?

Look at last photo, described as a small dent.

I'd ride it, and I'm 250#. Techniums are great bikes, I have one for my teenage son right now, and as the seller says, $40 is a great price for the component set alone if you don't want the frame. Suntour accushift 6sp system is pretty good, although I can't tell if either of the derailleurs are actually still on the bike. Wheels are probably decent for the vintage too.

A dent of greater than 10% of the diameter is considered a failure of a 4130 tube.

My point precisely. The lesser ductility of of a hard aluminum alloy material has decreased tolerance to deformation. That pic shows what looks like damage somewhere near 25% of the tube's diameter.

I certainly wouldn't trust that frame.

This mod turned out great. Really. The compact geometry increases stiffness by at least 17.3%.

Wow, nothing like aiming high! You have to admit though, it IS clean, just not $700 clean. If he found the right guy that had one just like as a kid and was having a seriously bad case of nostalgia, had more money than brains and knew NOTHING about bicycles who knows? He might just get it.

Do you also like long bike rides on the beach? Romantic candlelit bike rides? Making sweet sweet love to your bike down by the fire?
